Bigger front calipers that still clear 18 inch wheels?

Does anyone know if there are 6 piston Brembo calipers which fit oem rotors and still clear OEM 18 inch wheel?

Thanks!

I know the GTS 380mm kit clears Apex 18”s. Not sure about OEM rotors.

The AP 9660, std width pad version, may fit. Essex has a guide you can download.

Like your channel BTW.

Second this. If you want to run 18. This is a good choice.

I have looked into this for a while.Pad depth on stock rotors is massive, so finding a caliper with a pad that tall will be a problem, unless you are happy with a pad that will not cover the whole area on your disc.
Another issue is the disc thickness, but one solution is to use carbotech pads with increased thickness as they can do that.
All in, the calipers with similar pad depth are F10 M5 and GT350 MUSTANG.
Not sure they will clear 18, but you will need custom pads to offset the thickness.Those work with 36mm rotors, while OEM 380MM are 30mm.
I have investigated this for a while.PM me if you want more details.

Also went this AP route, but when I was shopping, looked at Girodisc rotors with stock calipers for heat management.
